German metal band Arven made me an instant fan with their outstanding debut Music Of Light two years ago, an album which seamlessly blended a few different genres together to create one of the most memorable albums of 2011. Now with their sophomore release Black Is The Color, they’ve only gotten better and their music has only gotten more diverse, to the point where you really can’t give an accurate description with just one genre, or even two genres. Maybe three or four genres could cover it, but even then, you would be leaving certain aspects out. However, what matters is that they managed to blend everything together fluidly, so it’s an album where it’s easy to love everything about it.
The steamy racy appeal of “Midnight Woman” may fill the heart of every hard rocking lady that still wears black today with blunted emotion, not to mention an addictive chorus to lead the way. The fine piece of scorching Hard Rock shreds lead on the pounding of “This Is How We Roll” a tune which has anthem classic written all over it.
